Within observational methodology it has been built ad hoc observational instrument Sport Climbing Observation Tool (SCOT) that has detected T-patterns that reflect the behaviour developed in the route ascent - hold, hand, hand contact time, quickdrawing, chalk and rest- for the best climbers -Lead modality- who participated in the 2011 World Championship, held in Arco (Italy). By the information obtain with T-patterns, the ascension was marked in sections (initial, middle and end), describing the manner in which the best climbers in the world complete the ascent of the route.
